Repairing a Drafty Mobile Home

We bought a 1990 Patriot double wide two months ago. It's very drafty and out of curiosity we looked under the siding. To our surprise it was cardboard! There is insulation under the cardboard. Shouldn't the walls be made out of wood or something stronger than cardboard?

I have lived in several mobile homes, and they were all made out of wood, more or less like a house. There is something fishy going on with yours, I would think. It sounds like some sort of "fix" that the former homeowners have done.
